Pediatric Cochlear Implants (CCCDP)

The Carolina Children's Communication Disorders Program (CCCDP) houses the Pediatric Cochlear Implant Program at UNC. As one of the largest pediatric programs in the world, we have a long history of providing comprehensive clinical care to children who receive cochlear implants. We serve children over 1000 children from birth to 21 years of age, and implant over 100 devices each year. CCCDP has participated in a number of clinical trials over the years with all three cochlear implant companies and been involved in additional clinical research related to various aspects of cochlear implant use.
